This is an extremely rare,hard to find movie,which to be quite honest,is no bad thing.The version I viewed was in it's native tongue,Italian,and is,as far as i'm aware,the only way anyone's likely to see it. The film begins with the dockside murder of a man,which starts an investigation undertaken by a cop(Jeff Blynn)whose favorite pastime is eating hard boiled eggs!(well,"kojak" had his lollipop's I suppose).A series of seemingly unrelated murders start to occur,two of which are very,very nasty,so nasty in fact that I couldn't possibly describe them here. An already cheap and cheerful film is cheapened further by endless scenes of a couple participating in various sex games,all backed by a score(by Berto Pisano)which wouldn't seem out of place in one of your dad's "stag" flicks. Needless to say these "plots" seem to tie up in the end(well...at least I think they do). The term "giallo",is the italian word for yellow,and these thrillers(titles such as BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE,BLOOD AND BLACK LACE and WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO SOLANGE?,are other examples of this fascinating and addictive genre,also much more highly recommended)have their origins in the mystery books published years ago in Italy,which were distinguishable by there yellow covers,but when all thats been said and done,I cant really recommend this sleazy,sordid affair to anyone(not that it's readily available anyway!),unless your idea of a nice night in is a showing of Lucio Fulci's equally misogynistic THE NEW YORK RIPPER.Happy hunting.....
